Despite the move, the airline will continue to serve Stockholm's primary airport with various domestic routes.
The move will result in 77 out of 118 pilots losing their jobs, as well as the approximately 30 cabin staff who are based at Arlanda, reports Gotlands Tidningar.
“The atmosphere is very worrying,” said pilot union representative Thomas Dahby to the newspaper.
Skyways has recently shelved three major initiatives, including an agreement with Gotlandsflyg, a route to Tampere in Finland, as well as routes between Arlanda and destinations in northern Sweden.
Other remaining routes include links from Arlanda to Karlstad, Halmstad, Jönköping, Krinstianstad, and Visby.
